another clip. one more. here we go. >> oh, my god. >> mr. romney, despite your best efforts, there is still some skepticism as to whether you will serve out all four years if elected governor. perhaps this might be a way to prove it. would you be willing to write a check for, say, a million dollars to be forfeited to the state if you renege on that promise and do not survive all four years? >> i'm not wild about gimmicks, i must admit. and i'm afraid it would bounce anyway. so -- but let's stand back -- let's stand back and -- >> so in watching that then, shannon, and i'm sure you watched some of the primary debates this past year, have you seen any major differences in mitt romney from then until now? >> yeah, he got a lot cheaper. the last time he was trying to bet it was only $10,000, not a million dollars. in all reality, in all reality i think that he's gotten better as a debater. he's had over 20 debates with his republican opponents. that certainly, i think, will help him tonight. that being said, even though i think his debating tactics and style will certainly be ve
on the obama record. certainly that rhetoric from mr. romney fits with that in recent weeks they said really a choice. dependency society based on the obama agenda of bigger government and bigger government intrusion into the lives of individual entrepreneural spirit of the american people versus romney view is less government, less regulation, less intrusion and more personal responsibility and opportunities of prosperity versus stagnation. there is a point on which you could expect the obama campaign and the president to pick at mr. romney tomorrow if it doesn't come up in a question at all. now the infamous rashes about the 47% who don't pay income taxes in the u.s. and that surreptitiously obtained video from several weeks back at a florida fund-raiser. the 47% is sure to come up. when he arrived last night at denver mr. romney did an interview with local affiliate, local fox station as a matter of fact and they asked him about it. here is how mr. romney intends to sort of deal with that issue of the 47%. >> they want to know is, will he get jobs for the american people and get rising in
with the campaign. you have to explain this to me, this is time mr. romney should be talking about middle income tax cuts. he's got a great reform plan, and he's got to help average americans losing money on a daily basis. what's going on here? why is he dialing back his tax cut plan? >> oh, well, larry, certainly not doing that, and it's really very consistent with what he's been saying on the stump ever since he announced this great plan and he's emphasized this is a tremendous pro-growth, pro-jobs tax plan, marginal tax cuts, and it's going to produce 7 million jobs over the next seven years. contrast that with the president's plan which we know is to raise taxes. >> i've known you a long time. what did he say? he didn't say what you just said. i know you're a supply sider. i go et that. he said today, don't expect big tax cuts, then went off talking about eliminating tax deductions. and you take a look, dropping the tax rate by 20% across the board for middle-income people, you can have -- you can have tax run 3,000 all the way up to 12,000. those are tremendous tax savings. that's what mitt rom
. just before the show tasta stard w we had breaking news. mr. romney how says in addition to his 20% across the board tax cuts he would help pay for that by capping tax deductions at $17,000 across the board. i want to give you a shot to comment. >> i find it strange larry, that in this moment before the debate that we are getting a revisited mathematics. it was obvious that it didn't just add up. so what they are going to do is eat into the mortgage deduction for middle class people. you know what that does for the citizens in the districts? >> nothing. >> you would rather let them keep their deductions? >> that is not one of them. the mortgage deduction is critical to the lifeline in the state of new jersey >> last one, what would you cap? can you give me one. >> in terms of second homes, property which is tremendous value i think these are things that we can look at. >> languahang on. next up our candidates are going to tackle the movement vexing issues of the election. you are not going to want to miss what they had to say. [ horn honks ] hey, it's sandra -- from accounting. pet
some debate press today before heading to a flight of fund-raisers. the president and mr. romney said to face often less than one week for the first presidential debate. both campaigns are downplaying the candid wiping of their opponents. how will these low expectations play out? with more on this, joined by ed rollins, republican strategist top boxes contributor. likewise, doing great, especially looking forward to this conversation. what is the strategy? >> you cannot play down the debate. the biggest thing left in his campaign. if you don't do well it does not matter whether you said you're not going to do well. you discord against. traditionally presidents don't do as well in debates. nobody basically stands up and makes points back-and-forth. sometimes they're hard to get going. this president is a good debater. my sense is he will be on his best. romney obviously became a very good debater. style versus substance. charismatic, a great debater. romney, livermore. also very strong in a primary debate, as you just alluded to, especially against gingrich. >> i'm sure fully ready to
that mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducing his unforced errors than less on the fourth estate's political bias. is romney looking do you think though for any excuse now to explain why he's down in this race given the economic circumstances in the country that everyone's been talking about and the fact that that should be a strong suit and winning on that? >> igt. well, i mean, look. everyone knows that predominant amount of the media will vote democratic in this election. i mean, that's been pretty much proven by every poll and statistic out there. >> what was that? >> white house press corpse votes democratic. most of the white house press corps votes democratic. that's nothing new. don't whine an it. you know the battlefield you're entering in to. what you have got to go is shift the bat toll the ground you want to battle upon and focus on the economy, focus on the failures of this president and as i mentioned before the self inflicted wound to them pretty bad for mitt romney because it undergirds the stereotype. he needs to shift focus to the already there stereotype
saw at the top, mr. romney doubled down today with cnn's jim acosta on that now debunked ad claiming that president obama is taking the work requirement out of welfare. in addition, as we said, there's new polling out tonight with a special focus on the economy. i talked about it earlier with chief national correspondent john king and chief political analyst gloria borger. so john, new polling out today from the "washington post" focuses on two of the most critical states in the election cycle, obviously ohio and florida. what do they show? >> they show bad news for governor romney heading into the big week of the first debate. ohio without a doubt a must-win state for governor romney. here's the new "the washington post" poll. you see the numbers right here. the president above 50, six-point lead in the state of ohio. that's one poll. but if you put together what we call a poll of polls, looking at now a half dozen polls look what youget. a six-point lead for the president of the united states and again, a must-win state for mitt romney. that is the state of ohio. another must-win,
of the romney campaign, supporters, chief among them, mrs. romney, on the other side, obama supporters and campaign, chief among them first lady michelle obama. there are a lot of other folks watching everything these men do. not just this evening when they begin to talk. but what they've been doing leading into this. i want t bring in chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. you wonder in those final moments before they take the stage, what are they doing? what do you know about the president's activities? >> candy, the president is right now headed over to this debate site, and i can tell you he had an easier day of debate prep than he has the last few days. he began with an exercise waking up and doing some exercise and then having some lighter prep with his advisers before he got on a plane, flew here to walk through the debate hall. went to his hotel, did some prep in his hotel room, and then he took some down time and finally saw the first lady. it is their 20th wedding anniversary tonight. they met up with brief time together and then they relaxed, had down time a little
. obama but free for the telling by mr. romney is that as the u.s. unemployment rate hit 9.5% in june 2009 and a shocked public was looking for a response, the new president introduced the affordable care act for the next few months. when mr. obama signed the law into march in 2010, the unemployment rate was 9.8%. if an opponent wanted to describe this in partisan terms, he might say that the president signed an entitlement dream while the economy burned. >> i think there's a certain spin on it. i think the president's argument would be when you become president, you usually get a couple years to get your big things done. health care was something he identified early on as a big thing that needed to get done, and he was going to use his political capital to get that done. and obviously in retrospect, i think we would all agree the economic recovery has been slower, but he felt the stimulus program and other things he was doing would be enough to start this economy on the right trend, and it did, just not as quickly as we would have all liked. >> joe? >> well, listen, i think daniel henning
. >> mr. president? >> first of all, i think governor romney is going to have a first day. because he's also going to repeal obama care which will not be very popular with democrats as you're sitting down with them. but, look, my philosophy has been i will take ideas from anybody, democrat or republican as long as they're advancing the cause of making middle class families stronger and giving ladders of opportunity to the middle class. that's how we cut taxes from middle class families and small businesses. that's how we cut a trillion dollars of spenting that wasn't advancing that cause. that's how we signed three trade deals into law that are helping us to double our exports and sell more american products around the world. that's how we repeal don't ask, don't tell. that's how we ended the war in iraq and that's how we're going to wind down the war in afghanistan. that's how we went after al qaeda and bin laden. so we've seen progress even under republican control of the house of representatives. but ultimately part of being principled, part of being a leader is being able to descr
the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white house downplays any friction between the two leaders and brushes aside criticism that there was no face-to-face meeting. >> the president has met with and spent time on the phone with prime minister netanyahu more than with any leader since he took office. and that is reflective of the importance of and the closeness of the relationship between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. but they did agree to "continue their regular consultations on this issue." wolf. >> dan lothian reporting from the white house. thank you. mitt romney also spoke by phone today with the prime minister. the call came while romney was at the philadelphia airport after making several campaign stops in pennsylvania. that's a state most political experts don't think he'll win. but a
questions. >> moderator: mr. president. obama: first of all, i think it is important for governor romney to present his plan he says only affect folks in the future. in the essence of the plan as he would turn medicare into a voucher program. it is called premiums support, but it's understood to be a voucher program. his running mate -- >> moderator: don't support that? obama: i don't. and then explain why. romney: that's for future people, not current retirees. obama: if you are 54 or 55 come you might want to listen because this will affect you. the idea originally presented by congressman ryan, your running mate, is that we would get a voucher to seniors and they could go out in the private marketplace and buy their own health insurance. the problem is that because the voucher would necessarily keep up with health care inflation, it was estimated this would cost the average senior about $6000 a year. now in fairness, what governor romney has now said as he will maintain traditional medicare alongside it. but there's still a problem because what happens is those insurance companies are
governor romney and mr. netanyahu have a good relationship is because he believes that israel has to set their policy. and we should not be dictating to mr. netanyahu how serious the problem is in israel with their security, with eiran attempting to do and what they are doing. if he has to draw a cartoon to the world to explain to them how serious this problem is, he ought to do it and keep doing it because there can't be any more serious foreign policy question out there today than this question. >> all right. matt, got to leave it there. we're running out of time. i really appreciate your time and we'll bring you back. thanks. we'll take a quick break. the most dependable, longest lasting, full-size pickups on the road. so, what do you think?

that sentiment. here was mrs. obama's response. >> ann romney recently said about the critics of her husband -- to her husband's critics that running for president is hard. do you sympathize with that? >> you know, the campaign experience is unique for everyone. everyone comes to this and experiences it differently. for me i really enjoy campaigning. i think barack and i we both get energy from it because when you live in washington, sometimes you get isolated from the rest of the country. and this is a time when we get out and we can remember just how decent people are. i come across people i don't care what political party they come from, they are hopeful. they're happy to see you. they're willing to listen. and it's good to be reminded of that. when you get out on the campaign trail. so i get energy from it. and i always have. and i've always said that. it's, you know, i never thought, you know a few years ago that i would enjoy it this much. but i really do. and i've had this -- then i can hang out with my brother. he's a pretty good asset too out there. >> reporter: wolf, mrs. obama was
-- i said i'm supporting mr. akin and he's going to work as hard as he can. >> mitt romney is not supporting todd akin. >> i'm a missourian. i want a senator who will vote to change the way the federal government is operating. that's not the incumbent of missouri. >> thank you for being with us today. >> up next, our politico briefing. the five things to watch for tonight in denver. you're watching "andrea mitchell reports" special coverage of the presidential debate live in denver, only on msnbc. humans -- even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? >>> in today's debate edition of our politico briefing politico's list of the five things to watch tonight. politico's jonathan martin joins us now. hey, jonathan. what a gorgeous day here on this beautiful campus. let's talk about the five t
-presidential candidate paul ryan campaigns in new hampshire at pinkerton academy. a recent washington poll found mr. obama was their president 5 1% to 41% over mit romney. this is about 40 minutes. ♪ ♪ ♪ >> thank you so much for coming out everybody. thank you so much. thank you so much. thank you pinkerton academy for hosting us here. let's get our way to prosperity. oil, gas, coal, nuclears, all of the above. the obama administration is standing in the way of what could be an exciting explosion of energy. we have so much coal, so much oil and gas that we know how to get without harming the environment. this puts people to work, this creates manufacturing jobs. it helps people heat their homes warmer in the winter, coomer in the summer. that means people living on fixed income have more income to live on. this is important because with an energy policy like the keystone pipeline, like opening up our lands for development, we can put americans back to work and stop giving money overseas to the middle east. it helps our foreign policy, it helps our economy, it helps our pay checks.

obama up by seven points. do we still call michigan a swing state? mitt romney supporters you can drop your hands from in front of your eyes here. the latest poll in michigan has mr. obama up by four in michigan. which is a lot less than the 12-point and 14-point leads the
the top of this segment, mr. blitzer because yesterday you were talking about how the polls were criticized by the romney campaign because they're somehow skewed but this poll of polls we did factored in fox news. you can't make that same claim. way to go. only one day after you said that we factored in the fox numbers. >> the fox poll is a good poll. it is very reliable like the nbc poll or the cbs or the abc and certainly our own cnn poll and all of these, you get a snapshot. you get a friend of what's going on right now. that doesn't mean it is going to continue to go on next week or three weeks from now but it is a snapshot of what's going on. when i look at the polls, i like to see where they were a month ago, two weeks ago, where they are now so you can see some trends. i always point out as you know, ashley, as important as the national polls are, the battleground state polls in ohio and virginia and florida, for example, these are the critical polls because that will determine who gets the 270 electoral votes. >> let me get you onto another topic that's making news today,
talk about romney or obama that they generally fill in a lot of things that are off color about romney but nothing whatsoever about mr. obama. everyone has dropped his middle name, you know? hussein. it just seems like he gets a lot of support, whether it's intended or not. host: a lot of facebook comments already on this topic. we will begin with melvin. the lame stream media are a bunch of obama lackeys. those are some of our facebook comments this morning. if you would like to continue the conversation on this topic, facebook.com/cspan. here's "the wall street journal" this morning. swing states a tough sell for romney. according to "the wall street journal"/nbc poll, obama leads in nevada 49% to 47% and in new hampshire and north carolina. two of the three states both think romney a strong run the economy. that is one set of polls. now we have this other set we want to show you quickly. this is from rasmussen. they do a daily tracking poll. for a long time now, they have been showing this race as even. this gets updated daily at about 9:30 a.m. they have obama and romney both up 46
combination of factors with demonstrating effects on mr. gore's campaign. and i guess the question is, can mitt romney pull something that would really kind of just give people a page-turner on, a, his personality, which he doesn't appear to really have one beyond being a really nice person. no, i'm serious. he has to show empathy and sympathy and a connection with people that he hasn't up until now. or, steve rattner, to be more specific about his policies, which many argue he hasn't been very specific nor paul ryan. >> he hasn't been very specific. but i think his bigger problem is the first one you said. that he's got to create some sense of connectivity or relationship with the voters. i think that's really his goal as well as what we were talking about in the earlier segment of trying to bring a clear depiction of obama's policies and the fact they haven't done everything they were supposed to. >> john harwood, can he do that in a debate? is the debate the setting? that would be when you're most clenched and concerned about every word that comes out of your mouth. how do you show the
.s. ambassador to the u.n., ambassador john bolt tops, also a fox news contributor and a mitt romney supporter i should add. we are joined by cia covert operations officer mike baker. welcome, gentlemen to goat of you. mr. ambassador, ahmadinejad was here last year, he was here the year before that, this was to be his last address to the u.n. general assembly as iran's p. it doesn't aeu paoefr that time has mellowed him. >> no, he's not showing that he's intimidated at all by the economic sanctions imposed on iran or efforts to isolate him. the form lacing that you describe is one that is intended to appeal to the large majority in the united nations that he can look to for aid and comfort. i think it's clearly designed to support iran's position across the board on the nuclear weapons program, syria, you name it. jon: we talk about the sanctions and we often use the word crip blink, are they? >> they are causing economic pain there is no doubt about it. the drop in the cost of oil has caused more pain. the real thing is will it stop their nuclear program and there is no evidence the sanctions a
